Tug boats transport massive bridge through Rotterdam’s Maas River

Tug boats moved a massive bridge along the Maas River to its new home in Rotterdam early on Monday morning.

The new Suurhoff Bridge floated on pontoons from its construction site under the raised sections of several other bridges.

The new bridge is 200-metre (656-feet)-long, 20 metres (65 feet) wide, and has a 40 metre (131 feet) high arch.

The operation to transport the structure will continue in the next few days until the bridge reaches its final destination, being placed near the old Suurhoff Bridge, which will then undergo renovation.
